So let me praise those who, over the years, have helped YourArlington. That assistance, coming in many ways, has been a series of presents to me. As the site observes its seventh birthday on Tuesday, Dec. 10, I want you to know how much I appreciate them. Let me count the ways: -- Since 2006, nearly 500 have registered to the site -- there are 418 current users -- and a number of have contributed news and opinion. -- Many have offered unsolicited news tips, which have led to published stories. -- Some have made helpful suggestions about how ...

Our team is dependent on the many individuals, organizations and businesses in Arlington that contributed in many ways to make our winning 9-2 season the success it was and we are very grateful to all.

The following letter to the editor by Susan Shaer of Arlington, executive director, Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND), was first published in The Boston Globe on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, and is republished here with the author's permission: RE "ICE cream man vs. the Pentagon" (Page A1, Nov. 29): For decades Ben Cohen has worked alongside organizations such as ours to help the public and politicians understand that, as he says in your article, "It just doesn’t make sense to spend more money on things that are less needed, and spend less money on things that are more needed." We at Women’s Action for New Directions applaud that a businessman like Cohen stands up for a more sensible bud ...

Beginning in the spring, the T plans to operate all subway trains and the 15 most popular bus routes until 3 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, The Boston Globe reported Dec. 3. To make it a go, Governor Patrick says he has $20 million, plus pledges from corporate sponsors, for a one-year pilot program. What do you think? Would you ride the T at 3 a.m.? Nearly two years ago, Rep. Sean Garballey, Democrat of Arlington, made a similar proposal. See this news story >> In the light of this plan, should Arlington restaurants stay open later? In response to a question from Jeff Boudreau of Arlington, Globe reporter Shirley Leung commented here that the 77 bus would be among the routes aff ...
A five-day extravaganza of films, panel discussions and conversations with filmmakers drew more than 1,000 people to the Regent Theatre in October during the third annual Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF). It has become an established venue to bring the world to Arlington, and one the public should embrace. The event, which ran from Oct. 23-27, opened with the animated short "Memento Mori" (Remember Your Mortality) followed by the documentary "Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth," chronicling the lives of six young Maya in Guatemalan and Mexico as they try to resist assaults to their environment and their culture. The narratives of the protagonists interwove with the creation myth of ...
Was Chuck Coughlin just joking with Stavroula Bouris when he sent her salacious emails? Did Nate Levenson receive a packet of emails from an unknown source, or had he orchestrated a conspiracy in which he directed that email accounts be hacked? Was YourArlington's publisher part of such a conspiracy? I can answer the last question with a clear "no." I have opinions about the other questions. The opinions are based on the facts as I know them. The trial in the lawsuit, which began Monday, Dec. 2, promises to address those questions and many others with further facts and opinions during testimony. ...
